Through more than 450 masterpieces, the author unfolds the story of 800 years of Western painting from Giotto, the Renaissance and Impressionism, to Pop Art and the present day. Sister Wendy scrutinizes in depth 50 of the world's most famous paintings, among them Picasso's "The Nude Woman", Monet's "The Waterlily Pond", and Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus". Using enlarged details, she reveals hidden meanings, explains content, and gives us a clearer understanding of the influences that inspired the artists.
